MnSPE is led by a volunteer board of directors elected by the membership, volunteer chapter leaders, as well as several committees.
Minnesota Society of Professional Engineers Foundation
The MnSPE Foundation is a 501c3 charitable organization founded by members of MnSPE in 1962. The Foundation supports the future STEM workforce in Minnesota through its support of educational outreach programs, and scholarships for engineering students.
MATHCOUNTS is a national enrichment, coaching and competition program that promotes middle school and junior high mathematics. Volunteer members of the MnSPE coordinate the program in Minnesota.
It is one of the oldest and most successful education partnerships in the country – involving volunteer engineers, educators, industry sponsors and students. In Minnesota, MATHCOUNTS has been reaching out to students and teachers since 1983.
